Product Review: Korean Makeup Skin79 Super Blemish Balm BB Cream


It is time for another Korean K-beauty BB cream review. The BB cream that I will review today is the Skin79 Super Blemish BB Cream in the shade Dark.

Cost: $12-$15 depending on where you buy it

Ingredients: Glycerin, Arbutin, Adenosine, Fructan, Moringa Seed Oil, Bertholletia Seed Oil, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Olive Fruit Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Ceramide, and several other ingredients. This BB cream has around 45 ingredients in it. 


Fragrance: This BB cream does contain fragrance.



Shade Range: There are 7 shades. I have the darkest shade in Dark.

1. Pink
2. Yellow
3. Natural
4. Light
5. Sand
6. Natural
7. Dark

This BB cream promises to brighten the skin and make it look clearer by covering impurities. This BB cream also promises to take away the dull appearance of the skin; it promises to be long-lasting and adhere nicely to the skin without darkening it or making it look oily. 


How This BB Cream Looks On The Skin

Skin Type: I used to have normal skin; not oily and not dry, but my skin has recently changed and become oily.

Before BB Cream (No Face Makeup)



After BB Cream


Oiliness: As soon as I put this BB cream on, I noticed that it made me look quite oily. It is a heavy oil-based formula. So much so, that I also noticed that when I put it on under my eyes to try to cover up my dark circles, the oiliness of it made my eyeliner immediately start to smudge. So this BB cream should not be applied close to the under eye area. I also do not recommend this BB cream for people with oily skin.

Coverage: This BB cream does have good coverage; it has medium coverage, which is quite good for a BB cream. You can also layer it for more coverage over scars and imperfections, but I did not feel that I could achieve full coverage, even when I layered it. The coverage is good enough though to wear it alone on those days when you want to take a break from foundation.

Glow: This BB cream does look beautiful on the skin; it slightly lightens the skin; it makes the skin look much smoother, and it does add a glow to the skin, so this is a good BB cream for those who want to lessen the appearance of dullness.



Packaging: I love packaging. The packaging of this BB cream looks classy and has such a unique pump, so the packaging is a winner.

Staying Power: This BB cream stayed on all day, but after a few hours, I looked even oilier than I did right after I applied it, so I recommend setting this BB cream with powder if you do wear it to reduce the oiliness.

Dark Circles: This BB cream did lessen the appearance of my dark circles.

Lines/Under Eye: This BB cream does settle into the lines there directly under the puffy part of the eye/the eye bag area. This BB cream does really moisturize the under eye area (the area directly underneath the lower lashes), which actually makes the lines there much less noticeable though. I could barely see the lines in this area at all which is impressive. 


Also, this BB cream did not settle into the lines on any other part of my face, such as my smile lines.

                       Final Thoughts

Though this BB cream can get oily, I do think it is still an excellent BB cream since it does make the skin appear smoother, brighter, less dull, and just more beautiful in appearance. Also, unlike other Korean BB creams, this one is much less white on the skin, while also still lightening the skin slightly. This BB cream actually blends in with your skin's natural color much better than any other Korean BB cream I have tried so far. So this BB cream is one of the best ones for those with darker skin. 

Also, though I am not generally into making my skin look lighter, I did definitely like how this BB cream looked on my skin; it really improved the appearance of my skin greatly. 

Finally, this BB cream also has many beneficial ingredients in it for the skin, so when I weigh both the good and the bad qualities of this BB cream, I do definitely feel that the good outweighs the bad, so I do recommend this BB cream.
